What to Know

The #3 Baylor Bears are 11-2 against the #21 Texas Longhorns since February of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Monday. Baylor and the Longhorns will face off in a Big 12 battle at 9 p.m. ET at Frank Erwin Special Events Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

Baylor was able to grind out a solid win over the Kansas Jayhawks this past Saturday, winning 80-70. Forward Jeremy Sochan and forward Flo Thamba were among the main playmakers for the Bears as the former had 17 points in addition to five rebounds and the latter had 18 points along with nine boards.

Meanwhile, Texas escaped with a win this past Saturday against the West Virginia Mountaineers by the margin of a single free throw, 82-81. Texas can attribute much of their success to forward Timmy Allen, who dropped a double-double on 26 points and ten boards.

Baylor is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Oklahoma State Cowboys Jan. 15 easily too and instead slipped up with a 61-54. In other words, don’t count the Longhorns out just yet.
